For His Sake…
I am but one, but I am one.
I cannot do everything, but I can do something.
What I can do, I ought to do.
What I ought to do, by the grace of God I will do.
Lord, what will you have me do?

St. Peter’s Daughter’s of the King

The object of this Order shall be the extension of Christ’s Kingdom through Prayer, Service and Evangelism.

Prayer is so simple.
It is like quietly opening a door and slipping into the very presence of God.  There in the stillness we can listen to His voice or even petition.
What we have to say matters not…
In His presence…
Is prayer…

All members must be women communicants of the Episcopal Church, or of other Churches in communion with it, or of Churches with the Historic Episcopate but not in communion with it.

Every woman who becomes a member of The Order of the Daughters of the King shall take the vow to observe the two Rules of the Order: The Rule of Prayer and the Rule of Service, at a Service of Admission in the Church.

  1. The Rule of Prayer: Each member promises, in addition to seeking to grow daily in a life of prayer, to pray daily for the spread of Christ’s Kingdom; for God’s blessing upon all members of the Order; and for the spiritual growth of the parish.
  2. The Rule of Service: Each member promises to take part regularly in the worship, study and work of the Church; to undertake a personal program of evangelism to bring others to Christ; to give aid to the Priest-in-charge for the up-building of the parish; and to minister to God’s people wherever she is.
  3. Corporate Communion of the Order: In addition to faithful participation in the Eucharist, each member shall regard it as her duty and privilege to prepare for and attend, if possible, a Corporate Communion of the Order on All Saints’ Day.
